An absolute favorite salad! The crisp, sweet apple with the slightly tart fennel and the toasted walnuts are delicious. An excellent side with grilled fish, chicken or fish on a hot summer evening.
This is definitely a solid recipe. It's a nice change for a side dish. We had it with the buttermilk brined pork chops. I don't taste the shallots as much as I'd like so perhaps I'd add some directly to the salad. Fresh, late summer/early fall flavors.
Our favorite supper is grilled fish and salad. This recipe will be a wonderful 'salad tradition.' Follow the recipe exactly--it is perfect!
